There are X-COM games since 1994. But I think the new XCOM 2 is here to blow your mind. At least, if you don’t take care against the resident aliens.
XCOM: Enemy Unknown from 2012 was great. A nice revival of a great series of games. Its expansion, Enemy Within gave us what we needed.
And now we have XCOM 2, that plans to give us the best content, adding some space for the community to mod the game, as well some mods from Long War Studios, the ones behind the great Long War mod for XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
The Unification Day happened 20 years ago. Humanity is now ruled under the order of the aliens that invaded Earth back in XCOM: Enemy Unknown. A secret organization, XCOM, tried to stop the invasion, but failed.
Now, you’re called once more: XCOM lives!
You’re now the resistance against an established and cruel alien government. Do your best to take over key objectives, while igniting a global resistance.
Familiar and new aliens will try to take you down, for good, as well as the ADVENT, enforcers of the alien regime.
In XCOM 2, since you’re rising up from the shadows, you’ll be able to use a concealment mechanic to successfully ambush enemy units. You’ll be able to loot enemy corpses, research, build and upgrade weapons, armors and rooms on the Avenger, a previous alien suplly craft converted into XCOM headquarters.
XCOM 2 also features a great and enjoyable soldier customization, with the ability to import custom characters.
There are also 3 mods available for free, since launch, from Long War Studios: SMG series Weapon Mod, Muton Centurion Mod and XCOM Leader mod.
You can watch the trailer below.
XCOM 2 is now available for PC.
